    ticky admitting to smoking pot

    We walk to a bookstore coffee shop across the street, but it’s closed, so we end up sitting on a low brick wall in front of a Ticketmaster office building. Aniston lights a Merit. The sun, behind her, dapples her hair, which is streaked and shoulder-length … ‘You read a story, and it says you smoke pot. It’s not even cocaaine or shooting heroiin. Pot! Which I’m not about to confirm whether that’s true or not.’ She pauses. ‘I mean, I enjoy it once in a while. There’s nothing wrong with that. Everything in moderation.’ Pause. ‘Geez, Louise. I’m drowning and I can’t get out.’ Pause. ‘I wouldn’t call myself a pothead’”, Sunday Herald (UK), Dec. 9, ’01

    We are grateful for the Turkish government’s generosity

    KILIS

    Actress and UN goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie and UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres on Thursday visited a refugee camp in southern Turkey which shelters nearly 13,000 Syrians who fled the relentless violence that has engulfed their country for 18 months.

    “It is very generous of the Turkish government to set up such a wonderful camp. This is really impressive,” Jolie told reporters after visiting the Oncupinar camp, one of several such sites erected by the Turkish government to handle the influx of Syrian refugees whose number in Turkey has exceeded 80,000.
    Jolie visited the camp’s daycare center and its hospital along with Guterres and Turkish officials.
    “As the UN high commissioner for refugees, I am very much pleased with what I have seen at this camp, and I am grateful for the Turkish government’s generosity,” Guterres told reporters.
    “It is imperative that the international community should show solidarity and extend support so that these high standards could be sustainable and they could materialize elsewhere,” he added.
    More than 27,000 people have been killed since the Syrian conflict erupted in March last year, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The UN puts the death toll at 20,000.
    The crisis has also forced 235,000 Syrians to flee to neighboring countries, according to official UN figures.

    Angelina Jolie waved to crowds in Istanbul after a visit to meet with Syrian refugees today. She traveled to Turkey as a special envoy after also stopping in Jordan and Lebanon this week to bring attention to the displaced Syrian civilians. Angelina was once again joined by UN Refugee Chief Antonio Guterres. She shared that the refugees “are very, very emotional and very deeply saddened by the situation in Syria and very concerned about their families and their friends in their country.”

    Angelina is getting back to her philanthropic duties following the filming of Maleficent outside of London. She and her family spent much of the Summer in the UK, where Brad Pitt also worked on The Counselor. Next, he’ll hit the big screen in Killing Them Softly, which comes out in November.

  • Too Bad @#285

    You are correct in saying “good always wins over evil”..That is why Jen will always win over this phony Ho and her desperate attempts for much needed media attention…The hits are dropping on her threads here…Hmmmmmm…Even her troll fans are getting tired of defending the gutter rat and her boyfriend..

  • Don’t Forget To Watch

    Don’t forget to watch TV Guide channel this Monday night at 9:00 P.M. They will be showing TV’s LIVE top 25 biggest blunders. The Ho’s leg made the list. Can’t wait to see them make fun of her once again. It is going to be awesome. That PR stunt will be talked about forever. What she does now means nothing.
